Sources have told El Conservador that the City of San Antonio is violating the state Anti-Sanctuary law, again. The San Antonio Fire Department (SAFD) has assigned two-person squads to stand by at Travis Methodist church where 40 "immigrants" from Honduras are being housed. They are assigned to two-hour shifts 24hrs a day for medical calls.
We should remember there are a large number of cases of mumps, measles and other illnesses that have been reported in ICE detention centers since the border crisis began. Also, the City has placed a notice on the City employee website is asking for volunteers that are Spanish speakers to help with the “immigrants.”
The health concerns are real. Today, April, 5, immigration officials in Arizona reported the death of a Mexican man who was in custody at the Florence Service Processing Center. Not only have the ICE and Border Patrol agents been placed in harms’ way with these diseases but now SA city firefighters will also be.
These “migrants” are illegal aliens who have broken the law to enter the U.S. and who have been released with conditions to reappear for hearings. They are not legal citizens, and taxpayers should NOT be responsible for their care. Let charities and private volunteers take care of them.
They should also be contained and confined to prevent the spreading of illnesses and to prevent their disappearance and avoidance of immigration requirements.
Former SA Mayor Julian Castro and Democrat presidential candidate is proposing illegal immigration be “decriminalized” which would create an open border. Castro’s proposal would destroy America as a nation.
Citizens must stand and demand that illegal immigration is punished rather than be excused or rewarded. People who break immigration laws should lose their eligibility to be citizens and to remain in the U.S.
Illegal aliens should also not receive the same benefits, rights or privileges as citizens, otherwise what’s the point of being a citizen? There must be strong disincentives against illegal immigration.
However, the taxpayers of the City of San Antonio, or any American taxpayers, should not pay for any public services for illegal aliens.
